About the Book:
In a town where dreams are buried, does love stand a chance?
Love and second chances aren’t easy to come by in a town named Tombstone. When Christy Grey receives an urgent summons to Tombstone, Arizona, she reluctantly leaves her new life in California. The trip goes from bad to worse when four masked men hold up Christy’s stage. She finally arrives in
Tombstone to find her mother ill and her brother trapped in a life of gambling. Desperate for money to support her family, will Christy bow to pressure from the local saloon owners and return to the life she thought she’d given up for good?
Nevada King has problems of his own. He’s been dodging bullets for years and wants nothing more than to settle down and get married. But he’s on the run from outlaws bent on revenge, and the one woman who captures his interest recognizes him from the stagecoach holdup. Will Christy turn Nevada in to the authorities, or will the outlaws on his trail catch him first?
About the Author:
First and foremost I’m a child of God and daughter of the King. I’ve been involved in women’s ministries for years, and serve on staff at our small church. I’ve been married for 38 years, have two grown children, two cats, two dogs and an Arabian mare. We live about 9 miles from the nearest town in our new home on 11 acres, surrounded by trees. I have five books out now & a 6th releasing in August, 2011. I write both women’s contemporary fiction and historical romance.
Miralee Ferrell quickly became one of my favorite authors, last year, when I read her novel Love Finds You in Bridal Veil Oregon. Her writing style and unique characters quickly worked there way into my heart. I then had the pleasure of reviewing her contemporary fiction novels Finding Jeena and The Other Daughter, as well as another Love Finds You book (Love Finds You in Last Chance California). I’ve been hooked ever since and was so pleased to have the opportunity to read and review Love Finds You in Tombstone Arizona.
LFY in Tombstone, Arizona is a sweet western that picks up exactly were Last Chance California left off. Christy, whom we met in Last Chance with Justin and Alex, is on her way home to her ailing mother and her younger brother, when her stage is held up. She is one of the unfortunate ones and is shot in the arm. Enter Nevada King. His sweet and adorable character put him in the wrong place at the wrong time, yet he was fortunate enough to help Christy out by doctoring up her arm so she can make it into Tombstone.
I could go on and on about their story, but if I do, I’ll give away the plot line and spoil the story for Miralee’s fans. So, I’ll stop there. But, what I will tell you is this: not only was this story a sweet and funny, and altogether faith-filled, it’s filled with so many other things, like the wonderful Doc Holliday, the OK Corral, Wyatt and Virgil Earp and so many other things that you hear about from History.
I highly recommend this book to everyone. The added suspense makes it a bonus, along with learning to fully rely on and trust God. Being in the middle of Tombstone, watching the instant attraction between Christy and Nevada, and seeing the characters grown in a friendship that includes the reader, was fantastic. Most definitely worthy of 5 stars and so much more!
